A Letter from the Board
Youth Impact was founded in 2015 as a 501c3 tax-exempt charitable organization in order to help those in need within the El Paso communities. We are a volunteer and community supported non-profit and have served over 5,000 families during these years. We have provided over 9,000 pounds of food throughout the years we’ve been doing this outreach and intend to help many more. Our desire is to have this pantry led by our most valuable natural resource: OUR YOUTH!
We are people from the community, business people, educators, and family oriented people who desire to see youth become leaders and serve within their communities. We want our youth to serve in communities and make an impact in their lives through experiential learning in Leadership, Community Service, Ecological Projects and Learning Initiatives. What better way than to have them serve their community by volunteering in our monthly Food Pantry and other initiatives.
About 19.0% of families and 22.2% of the population were below the poverty line, including 29.8% of those under the age of 18 years old, according to the 2015 US Census. These statistics show the significant need our area residents and children experience on a daily basis. We have designed this program to resolve the issues of poverty and hunger long term, through our monthly food pantries which is an effort we want to instill in our youth.
We would hope to accomplish raising youth that will better integrate into the national and global economy raising themselves and their families out of poverty. It’s a proactive effort to instill in our youth the important core values of being caring, honest, diligent, fair, fortitude, responsibility, and respect for themselves and others. By collaborating with a broad range of constituents, including the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank among other community groups, Youth Impact will be constantly sharing our mission to those that participate in our monthly Food Pantry. Thank you for supporting our mission and we hope to see you on our monthly pantries as a volunteer!
